This tour is known for combining beautiful natural landscapes, Inca architecture in Tipon, pre - Inca Wari architecture in Pikillacta and a beautiful chapel, known as the "Sistine Chapel of America"
The south area of Cusco played a very important role on the development of the great Inca state. This started with the emigration towards the south (Peruvian altiplano) which made possible the occupation of the valley of Cusco, the first inhabitants were the Marcavalles who are considered as the oldest human civilization (1000 B.C) and who occupied the area of the same name, the Omas occupied the district of San Jeronimo and the Wari-Chankas, who left great developments on irrigation, urban plans and Andeans making.
This development can be seen in two archeological places.We will enjoy our lunch on the way back to Cusco, to finish our tour at Andahuaylillas, picturesque Andean town where the San Pedro church is found, known as the Sistine Chapel of America due to its impressive paintings and murals. Return to Cuzco and transfer to hotel.
Tipon: Tipon is said to be a royal garden commissioned by Wiracocha. It is one of the most elaborate examples of agricultural terracing created by the Incas.
These tall terraces which run up the narrow valley are irrigated by an aqueduct from Pachatusan, the mountain above the site,In addition to the terracing there are also some other structures at Tipon, including baths, a temple complex, canals and aqueducts.
Tipon is definitely one of the lesser visited sites in the Cusco area but it is equally as impressive as those in the Sacred Valley. The Tipon Archeological Complex is located 24km southeast of Cusco.
Pikillaqta: Pikillacta is the only pre-Inca site in the Cusco area. This adobe complex was built around 700 to 900 AD by the Huari, in the area, there is a small Inca site just a short walk from Pikillacta, known as Rumicolca, a travel checkpoint for the Incas.
Andahuylillas: Here you find the "Sistine Chapel of Peru", a church that is home to golden altars, paintings and many colored ceilings.
The chapel is simple and unassuming on the outside, but on the inside you'll find masterpiece after masterpiece,On the return pass Saylla typical Cuzco where people can enjoy the delicious pork chicharrones (optional).We returned to Cusco for approximately 3:30 pm.
